They appear to be available in the Mac stores in the mac mini section. I'm didn't set mine up right away so I'll track it down when I get a moment. I've been meaning to set it up so maybe I'll give it whirl today.

Some DV cameras can convert from S-video to DV.

2- Though to me, it seems like you might as well get somebody else to dub it for you.

3- Be careful about 7.5 IRE setup. Even some "professional" DV devices don't do it correctly. Check the bars and tone in FCP and see if they line up. If they don't then you can use the color corrector to fix that (adjust both saturation/chroma gain and luma black level), but you might as well get the dub done right in the first place.
